Andy Milonakis Career
On January 26, 2003, Milonakis was invited to a Super Bowl party hosted by a friend. However, he decided to stay at home and shoot a video entitled “The Super Bowl Is Gay” instead of attending the party.
Two weeks after Andy uploaded the film on AngryNakedPat.com, it quickly gained widespread attention online.
After the video was viewed by a member of the writing staff for the late-night talk show “Jimmy Kimmel Live!,” Andy received an email from a producer of the show requesting him to call as soon as possible.
After playing the video for his audience on his show, Kimmel declared to them, “The kid is going to be a celebrity.” The next night, he aired a different video featuring Milonakis, and then Andy started making appearances on the show, conducting hilarious interviews with random people he found on the street all across the country.
He came to Los Angeles after working as a guest on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” and earning enough money to fund his journey there through savings.
After moving to Los Angeles, Milonakis immediately got to work on developing a pilot concept with Jimmy Kimmel. The two presented the concept to MTV, which ultimately led to the production of “The Andy Milonakis Show.”
On June 26, 2005, the first episode of the show aired on MTV. For the second and third seasons, the show was relocated to MTV2. Before it was pulled from the air in May of 2007, “The Andy Milonakis Show” had aired a total of 22 episodes, and in 2005, it was nominated for a Teen Choice Award in the category of Choice Summer Series.
The show featured skits, segments with regular people, and appearances by celebrities including Jimmy Kimmel, John Stamos, Sarah Silverman, Snoop Dogg, and Paul Reubens. Since the cancellation of “The Andy Milonakis Show,” Andy has gone on to star in a number of films, such as “Who’s Your Caddy?” (2007), “Extreme Movie” (2008), and “Mac & Devin Go to High School” (2012).
Additionally, he has provided the voice of N.E.P.T.R. in eight episodes of “Adventure Time” (2010–2018), which airs on the Cartoon Network.
In the rap group Three Loco, which also included Riff Raff and Dirt Nasty, Milonakis served as a member, and the group issued the album “Three Loco!” in the year 2012.
